Here's why Jesse Eisenberg is currently sauntering around Ireland and sampling boxty in Cavan

One of the more unusual celeb sightings.

YOU MIGHT KNOW Jesse Eisenberg for playing Lex Luther in Batman v Superman. Others will know him for portraying Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network.

The chap has been in a lot of stuff.

The Hollywood actor stopped by Taste of Cavan yesterday and was spotted sampling some Drummully Boxty and taking photos with fans.

People were a little surprised to see the actor so far from home in this unlikely place.

Jesse previously stopped by the Wood Quay sessions.

But why is he here?

He’s recently been knocking around Ireland while filming a new Irish film, Vivarium. The sci-fi thriller is the brainchild of filmaker Lorcan Finnegan, and began production back in July.

Jesse and Imogen Poots play a couple looking for a starter home, only to follow a mysterious real estate agent to a new housing development, before becoming trapped in a maze of identical houses.

Sounds like Dublin was a very accurate place to shoot this.

Jesse seems to be using his time here in Ireland to explore some of the unique culinary treats we have on offer.

We wonder where he’ll go next? Barack Obama plaza? The Ploughing Championships? The Rose of Tralee? The possibilities are endless.
